What should i do next??

So i had been thinking, i dont really need anything cosmetically for my truck, so i want to start saving for something good, performance wise.. i am tuned and have a 4" exhaust, what should i do next?? i dont run it hard, so i havent seen the need for studs yet, although they will be done eventually.. what can i combine with my tuning to get a little more out of my engine but still be able to keep it as reliable as it has been????? seems the tuning itself is getting kinda boring now..

All stock except my exhaust and sct tuner. I'm not looking for anything cosmetic, I want performance. Engine wise, tranny wise.

That would be the best idea yet. Get ya some 4.30's That would put you back to the stock gear ratio and give you full use of your tunes. It will run roughly 1500 bucks installed both front and rear but it will be worth it.

i'd say an egr delete and studs... just to keep it reliable for future mods. i guess injectors, turbo and a tranny afterwards. Gears wouldn't be a bad mod but it wouldnt make a huge difference. if you want something just to play around with... get studs and nitrous. but eventually that would become to expensive. it all depends on what you have to spend. the more $$$ you have, the faster your truck is.
